The #RIPTwitter hashtag has been trending after Elon Musk announced that Twitter has applied a limit to the number of tweets users can read in a day.
The platform is limiting verified accounts to reading 10 000 tweets a day. Non-verified users, the free accounts that make up the majority of users, are limited to reading 1 000 tweets per day. New unverified accounts would be limited to 500 tweets.
“To address extreme levels of data scraping & system manipulation, we’ve applied the following temporary limits,” said Musk in a tweet.
